WSBA Governance

The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA which determines the general policies of the Bar and approves its budget each year. The Board of Governors consists of the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, and members elected from each Congressional District and at-large.

Your Congressional District is listed on myWSBA (log in required). You can also enter your home address (or, if you live out of state, your agent of service address) on this Congressional District map. Choose "Congressional," click on "Find My District," and then click on the map next to the symbol marking your address.

The Board's Work

The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA. The Board moves the Bar forward with an eye toward both its long-standing mission and guiding principles, and its short-term strategic goals.

Proposed Change to Bylaws

At the June 12, 2015 meeting, the BOG will consider adopting a proposed recommendation to delete WSBA Bylaws Art. XIII - Editor of the Bar’s Official Publication. A first reading of the proposal was held at the April 24-25, 2015 meeting. The 2008 bylaw outlines the process for selecting an editor for the bar’s official publication, NW Lawyer, and the process for hiring an independent contractor to serve as editor. The deletion of Art. XIII will allow the Communications department to achieve greater efficiency by hiring an in-house editor to work alongside other staff members involved in the daily operations and planning of NW Lawyer.
